    A word of warning to anyone who is thinking of purchasing the R1 Canadian version of The Sixth Sense: Vista Series
    If you are picky about stickers on your dvds, don't buy it. The Canadian release comes with a big round sticker that reads "Version Française Incluse". Well, one can always remove it, right? Wrong. The damn thing is PRINTED, not glued. [​IMG]
    Be warned...

    It is not a sticker, and so it can't be removed. Most of Disney's Canadian titles are this way, with a printed notice, rather then a sticker. Language laws in Canada require that packaging sold into Quebec include information that clearly states that a movie encludes a French soundtrack. TTBOMK

    Now, I don't know if it has to be a big marking or, if the data can be displayed in the matrix of features on the back or not. I suspect that it has to be a fairly prominant thing.

    Really, if you don't want a Canadian version, don't buy it, IMHO.

    I got a Tarzan: CE DVD from Canada and it had a STICKER, not a printed.

    Personally, I don't see much of a problem with this....It's what's inside that counts. There are more important things to complain about IMHO......moving on.[​IMG]

    I hate this myself and was going to post a thread concerning almost all of Disney's DVD's that have this. Why does it need to be so out in the open on the front cover? Why can't they put a sticker on the shrink wrap?

    Yeah... they did the same thing with the "Pearl Harbor" DVD. I agree, it's annoying.

    That not the worst thing about VISTA series, It's the plastic disk holder, I broke it trying to get the disk off, I also broke the "Unbreakable" one too. [​IMG]
